Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

Zach Vinson

Cracked Open

2009-05-11

Zach Vinson's Cracked Open is a fun power-pop record full of catchy hooks and fun guitar-pop, with the occasional slower number like "All the Sins of Men" and "Locked Outside". Through and through it's pretty fun and energetic, with songs like the rocking opener "Little Birdie", the piano laden "So Much to Blame", and the danceable "Christee Christee", which is further proof that there aren't any songs with girls names in the title that don't rule.
